Teaching Texas Drivers Since 1977

We sell safety, the bargain of your life!

Austin Driving School first opened its doors in 1977 on the notorious sixth street in downtown Austin. Over the years the school has expanded from driving an Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, Buick Century, and a Ford Pinto to Toyota Corollas. While Austin Driving School no longer has a location on sixth street, it has expanded with locations in Far South, South, North and Northwest Austin to Westlake, Cedar Park, Pflugerville, Round Rock, Waco, Temple, North and South Arlington, Garland, Bryan, Fort Worth, White Settlement, and North and Northeast San Antonio, Texas.

Austin Driving School is best known in the community for the legendary burro found on every driver’s ed car. While often mistaken for a rabbit, the story behind the notorious burro learning to drive has always remained a mystery. Driver “Ed” has adorned many vehicles teaching teens and eventually their kids and grandkids to drive. He even sat atop the roof of a couple’s vehicle as they drove off from their wedding after having met during driver’s education. While “Ed” has been a fun part of Austin Driving School since its birth, teaching safety and how to drive defensively has always been the cornerstone of the school’s success. While a burro can be taught to drive physically, the mental aspect of driving defensively is a life saving technique that Austin Driving School takes pride in teaching all of its students.
